Bonjour and welcome survivors to Day 9 of the Men’s Roland Garros Suicide Pool – 2013 edition.

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use him again. There is a “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made. Check it. You don't want to accidentally pick a player you have already chosen. It has happened this event - twice!

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. Only a portion of the draw plays each day.

Post your Day 9 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris, rain or shine. For day 9, that’s Monday, June 3, 2013, 11:00 AM in PARIS. For those in the US, that is Monday 5:00 AM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post."

If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

Good luck!

Day 9 consists of only the 4 fourth round matches from the TOP half of the men's draw:

Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] v Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) [16]
Tommy Haas (GER) [12] v Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) [29]
Rafael Nadal (ESP) [3] v Kei Nishikori (JPN) [13]
Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) [9] v Richard Gasquet (FRA) [7]

This may be the last relatively straightforward pick of the pool...

Haas, T.

(If Simon beats Federer, I'm screwed. Haha)

Wawrinka

Before the tournament started, I had Youzhny beating Haas in the 4th round in my draw, but I'll partially defer to the majority view that Haas is the favorite (despite his exhausting five-set win) and avoid that match entirely. Wawrinka appears locked in like never before this year. Still, this is a very dicey pick.

Day 1: Andreas Seppi
Day 2: Albert Montanes
Day 3: Fernando Verdasco
Day 4: Tommy Robredo
Day 5: Grigor Dimitrov
Day 6: Gilles Simon
Day 7: Philipp Kohlschreiber
Day 8: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Day 9: Tommy Haas

I could pick almost anyone as on PEHK in this half is still alive of my previous picks. But is is still tough. The only sure picks need to be saved. And even though I am going with Tommy Boy it is not a no brainer like PEHK was. I am more comfortable with Haas than Stan or Richie and I don't want to use Rafa yet. But I am only marginally more comfortable with Haas than I am with either Youzhny, Gasquet or Wawrinka. Any of those 4 could easily win (or choke away) their match

My day 9 pick is Richard Gasquet. I know this is very risky, and it looks like I'm going against the tide based on the picks so far. Oh, well....I can't believe I'm still in it this far, so?? Thanks....GH
